Funny story: I went to a local computer shop in town hoping to buy a replacement socket A motherboard, and the sales guy I talked too (he looked like the manager), proclaimed fervantly that they don't sell AMD products. I gave him a funny look, and then he went all Intel jihad on me, boasting about how it's the best...etc etc. He was wearing a shirt with "Intel" embroidered on the chest, and I raised my eyebrow at him and asked, "Are they paying you?" He denied it, of course, but it was a riot...my girlfriend and I joked about it afterwards. Really, I know people have their own preferences, but I was a bit displeased to see the zealotry on the job (seems like bad salesmanship to me). And don't get me wrong; I have a positive opinion of Intel, but their cult followings rub me the wrong way (just how I like Apple computers a lot but just want to whack the knownothing fanboys/girls over the head with a thick O'Reilly book).
